The RPM Fusion team is proud to announce the public availability of our
''free'' and ''nonfree'' package repositories for Fedora 10 (Cambridge).
The repositories contain multimedia applications, kernel drivers, games
and other software the Fedora Project doesn't want to ship for various

RPM Fusion repositories give Fedora 10 the ability to play all kinds of
audio and video -- including, but not limited to MP3s or video files in
MPEG or Xvid formats.

You can browse the repository contents for the i386 architecture via
these URLs (x86-64, ppc and ppc64 are supported as well):


To make RPM Fusion repositories available on a freshly installed Fedora
10 system run the following command:

| $ su -c 'rpm -ivh

More details about how to configure and use RPM Fusion can be found in
our wiki: http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration

You can also enable RPM Fusion while installing Fedora 10 -- details and
some screenshots that should give you an idea how everything works can
be found at http://rpmfusion.org/EnablingRpmFusionDuringFedoraInstall

Please note that the graphics drivers from AMD are not yet available in
the repositories as it seems they don't work with F10 right now. If you
know how to make them work let us know, then we'll try to ship them as
an update as soon as possible.

There is still a lot of room for a whole lot of improvements in RPM
Fusion. If you are a packager (or want to become one) then join us! Our
mailing lists can be found at

Thanks for you interest in RPM Fusion.

=== Reminder for the folks that plan to yum-update to Fedora 10 ===

If you have rpmfusion packages installed on your system already and plan
to live-update to Fedora 10 using yum then please leave the rpmfusion
repositories enabled for the big "yum update" run. Thus you'll get all
the updated packages from RPM Fusion as well, which is important, as
their dependencies get fulfilled by the Fedora 10 packages. That's not
the case for the old packages that are on your system right now -- those
in fact have dependencies on the older Fedora bits you are about to
update, which will lead to a lot of trouble.

=== Examples to get the most important bits from RPM Fusion ===

Once you installed the release rpm you can install software using the
graphical software installation tools which are part of Fedora. As
root-user you can also use yum on a command line to install packages;
for example:

~  * if you'd like to install Xine (a video player), run
# yum install xine-lib-extras-freeworld xine
That will also improve Totem capabilities, as the Totem from F10 can use
xine as backend as well.

~ * if you prefer MPlayer, run
# yum install mplayer-gui

~ * if you prefer VLC, run
# yum install vlc

~ * do you want to get enhanced audio and video support in applications
that rely on GStreamer? Then run this:
# yum install gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-ffmpeg

~ * do you want to get the latest Nvidia drivers? Then run this:
# yum install kmod-nvidia

~ Note that there are also "kmod-nvidia-173xx" and "kmod-nvidia-96xx" --
those are the legacy drivers that support older GeForce cards that are
not supported by the latest drivers.
